In fine-mesh sieve, rinse buckwheat groats under cold water until water runs clear.

In saucepan, combine buckwheat groats, coconut beverage, honey, vanilla, salt, cardamom and ginger; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until buckwheat groats are tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand for 5 minutes. 

Divide porridge among bowls; drizzle with coconut milk.

Toppings: Sprinkle porridge with pomegranate seeds, orange segments and pistachios.

Test Kitchen Tip: Coconut beverage is sold with other nondairy drinks—such as soy and almond—and often found in shelf-stable Tetra Pak cartons.
